According to the London daily Al-Hayat, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem was expected to visit Ankara on Sunday afternoon to deliver a message on behalf of President Bashar Assad regarding fuel tanks reportedly dropped near the country's border with Turkey by IAF planes which had allegedly entered Syrian airspace last week. Muallem was scheduled to meet with European Union ambassadors in Damascus to brief them on what Syria claims was an aerial violation of Israel, the report said.
